Five suspects were arrested and police are seeking a 6th in the robbery of a 41-year-old Dover man on Saturday afternoon.  The robbery occurred as the victim was walking northbound on South Kirkwood Street.  The victim advised he was “swarmed” by multiple juvenile suspects and he was punched and kicked multiple times.  The victim suffered a facial laceration and swelling to his head as a result.  During the attack, the suspects stole a bag belonging to the victim and fled into a residence in the 100 Block of North Kirkwood Street.  A review of surveillance video corroborated the victims account of the incident and also showed the suspects fleeing into a residence in the 100 Block of North Kirkwood Street.  Dover Police Officers immediately responded to that residence and were able to positively identify five of the suspects in the video, in the home.  Police took Tanasia McKeithen (12), Unique McKeithen (14), Deja Davis (13), and Destiny Washington (14) into custody without incident.  Ahmir Bailey (15), fled from officers from the residence.  After a brief foot pursuit, Bailey was apprehended by Dover Police. Police are still seeking the identity of the 6th suspect at this time.   Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Dover Police Department at 302-736-7111 or call the Delaware Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 1-800-Tip-3333 or go online at http://www.tipsubmit.com.
